Creator God, thank you that you are perfectly faithful. You never forget, never fail and never take back a promise. Please help me to lead your people well. May the word of Christ dwell in me richly, teaching me in all wisdom. May I sing with thankfulness in my heart to God. Whatever I do, in word or deed, may I do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
